Vertical Alignment

Give some vertical alignment to elements by manipulating their vertical-align property.

Note that only items with the following display properties can be vertically aligned:

  • inline
  • inline-block
  • inline-table
  • table-cell

The alignments consist of the items in the following list and are also available in responsive variants, in the form .visible-{breakpoint}-{alignment}. Please refer to how our breakpoint nomenclature is used.

  • .valign-baseline
  • .valign-top
  • .valign-middle
  • .valign-bottom
  • .valign-text-top
  • .valign-text-bottom

Example with inline elements.

baseline - top - middle - bottom - text-top - text-bottom
<div class="bg-gray-50">
    <span class="bg-cyan-100 valign-baseline">baseline</span>
    <span class="bg-cyan-100 valign-top">top</span>
    <span class="bg-cyan-100 valign-middle">middle</span>
    <span class="bg-cyan-100 valign-bottom">bottom</span>
    <span class="bg-cyan-100 valign-text-top">text-top</span>
    <span class="bg-cyan-100 valign-text-bottom">text-bottom</span>

Using table cells.

baseline top middle bottom text-top text-bottom
<table class="table table-bordered" style="height: 100px;">
        <td class="valign-baseline">baseline</td>
        <td class="valign-top">top</td>
        <td class="valign-middle">middle</td>
        <td class="valign-bottom">bottom</td>
        <td class="valign-text-top">text-top</td>
        <td class="valign-text-bottom">text-bottom</td>

Slightly more complex uses, such as being able to align items in a row, become quick and easy.

<div class="bg-gray-50 w-100 d-table">
    <div class="d-table-cell valign-bottom">
        <a href="#">View more in teacher's guide</a> |
        <a href="#">Common Core alignment</a>
    <div class="d-table-cell valign-bottom text-right">
        <button type="button" class="btn btn-primary btn-lg">Continue</button>
